The Intention of the N.T. Writers by N.T. Wright

Derek Ouellette —  September 7, 2010

Blah… I’m not writing a post, only directing you to one.

Craig Adam’s quoted N.T. Wright’s book The Last Word, to the effect of Wright explain how the N.T. writers were conscious of the fact that what they wrote was akin to O.T. authority and that the early church recognized this fact.

    Thanks for the link, Derek. I really like the quote (of course) but unfortunately there are no footnotes backing up Wright’s claims. I mean… I’d sure like to think this is true, but I’d also like to see a more complete defense. The brief book The Last Word appears to be something he dashed off in haste.

    True, but that perhaps is the point of The Last Word, to get people to begin to think about how we got our scriptures afresh and to move beyond the old authority debate which pits “tradition” against “scripture”. I suspect that someone will pick up these workable thesis – in due course – and develop it further.
